. the cypriot government says the country's parliament is unlikely to pass legislation which would impose a tax on bank deposits. lawmakers are set to meet and vote on the levy which has been set on a condition of the eu bailout. meanwhi meanwhile, the german finance minister has rushed to the defense of a highly unpopular tax. the move was necessary to keep cyprus from sharing in the burden of a eu bailout. and uncertainty over the outcome of the vote in nicosia continues to weigh on markets. cyprus said its stock exchange will trading until thursday. cypriot banks have been placed on negative watch. carolin roth is reporting now for us. the latest we're hearing is that the vote may not happen today. what can you tell us? >> absolutely. there are a lot of moving parts still, kelly. this is a very fluid situation. the vote is scheduled to happen at 6:00 p.m. local time. there has been no official cancellation on part of the government. but, again, a government spokesperson at the same time also saying that it's very unlikely at this point that the vote will actually go through. that is, of cour

, rangery. they're if disbelief over this decision that was struck between the government and brussels leaders on saturday morning. but it's not just the people who are angry. it's also the politicians. many politicians in this 50/60 parliament in cyprus have said they would reject the bailout package because of the hugely unpop already deposit tax. press reports indicate that up to three parties could be volting against the bailout deal, which will be voted on in parliament later today. that's the debate and the vote are expected to kick off around 4:00 p.m. local time. so what the president is trying to do at the moment, he's trying to pure swede the members of parliament that this is the only solution going forward. if they vote against the bailout deal, the only alternative is bankruptcy for this country in the next couple of days. but it's going to be very, very crucial for the president to strong arm the other members of parliament into a positive decision on the bailout deal because at this point in time, he does not have a clear majority in parliament. he only has 20 seats. and

the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. the broader point is, is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> warner: both leaders spoke extensively about iran and about the different timetables the countries are on for possible military action to prevent an iranian nuclear weapon. mr. obama said he thinks there is still time for diplomacy but added: >> each country has to make its own decisions when it comes to the awesome decision to engage in any kind of military action. and israel is differently situated than the united states, and i would not expect that the prime minister would make a decision about his country's security and defer that to any other country, any more than the united states would defer our de

rogue nations. the government of cyprus is scared to death of insulting vladimir putin. we'll have an expert who will play this scenario out for us. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up, let's get the latest on the cyprus report. michelle joins us by phone. >> good evening. the details are changing, but the one core fact important to investors is true. for the first time ever in the european crisis, portions of bank accounts will be seized in order to pay for a bailout. cyprus agreed to this to get a 10 billion euro loan to bail out their banks. what is still unclear and controversial is whether insured deposits will also be seized. original plan was if you had an account in cyprus with less than 100,000 euros, would you have to pay a tax even though it falls below the insurance threshold. even though in theory it was supposed to be 100% guaranteed by the state. that turned out to be so controversial they are second-guessing themselves and reconsidering. a few hours ago the minister put out a statement saying they thought the smaller depositors should be protected. th
government would be with peace toward the palestinians. let me be clear -- israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of a .wo state for two peoples we extend our hands in peace and friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit him along with the visit of the secretary of state kerry help us turn a page in relations with the palestinians. let us sit down at the negotiating table. let us work together to achieve the historic compromise that will end our conflict once and for all. let me conclude on a personal note. i know how valuable the time and energy is of the american president, yourself. this is the 10th time we have met since you became president and since i became prime minister. you have chosen israel is your fort and then you -- venue your foreign visit and your second term. thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening that friendship and alliance between our two countries. it is deeply appreciated. you have come here on the eve of passover. i've always considered it it as our most cherished holiday. it celebr
happened when the rebels took the city. it is feared the sort of retribution government supporters made out to their attackers will be overtaken by reprisals, score settling, along with looting. >> they have cut our phone networks. they are telling us, raping us, polluting. they are not allowing us to live. they have taken the state hostage. he had become an unpopular president, especially outside the capital. 10 years after he took power, he has suffered the same fate. only 10 weeks after the signing of a new power-sharing of peace deal. amidst celebrations, there was hope of some desperately needed stability. what was to follow was more death, more chaos, and suffering for one of the poorest countries -- [no audio] >> they are very well organized. they have been keeping the momentum and pressure for some time. when the peace talks failed and they asked specifically for people who they know are in jail to be released, and also for troops to leave their country and ugandan troops to leave the country, the rest was history. it came in in full force. the president has fled. >> this is a count
at this in a small section of society. what is the south korean government going to do about it? >> reporter: yeah, i think you're right. south korea is one of the most connected countries in the world. north korea one of the least connected at presence very minimal on the internet, but the upper echelons even have access to the internet. but they have illustrated they have put a lot of effort, training, resources into getting the best and brightest in north korea trained up on cyber warfare tactics. they're very prevalent on the inside in attacking particularly south korean institutions, they've done it on a number of occasions. south korea has been trying to address that. they've got their own training college to sort of sort of train cyber warriors. they also have a special committee they formed just today to tackle this crisis whether they're going to identify the threat they say and implement the kind of countermeasures they say they need to prevent this from ever happening again. >> matthew chance, thank you so much from seoul, south korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria.
do not know of a family, i do not know of other units of government that as they're trying to wrestle with this question confine themselves to only looking at one side of the balance sheet. but that's what the house budget does. you know, i was thinking about this approach and this question about deficits not long ago, and it struck me that when i look at myself in a mirror, madam president, i always wish that i was thinner. i always wish i was thinner. but i've never once looked in a mirror and wished i was weaker. an all-cuts approach is like looking in a mirror and wishing your weaker because an all-cuts approach placks yo makes you wen education, weaker in defense, by laying people off in jobs, it makes you weaker because your unemployment rate is higher. it is like looking in the mirror and wishing your weaker. we have to be stronger. can we make cuts? sure we can and we have and we'll make more. but we ought to be focused on being stronger, about growing the economy and growing jobs. and that's why the approach that the senate takes is the right approach. because by utilizing re
the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingnesso e-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. everybody who knows the facts of the chemical weapon stockpiles inside of syria as well as the syrian government's capabilities i think would question those claims, but i know that they're floating o there right now. the broader point is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> rose: joining me from washington, michigan congressman mike rogers, he is the chairman of the house intelligence committee. i am pleased to have him on this program. welcome. >> charlie, thanks for having me. >> rose: what is it that caused you to say, you know, there's a probability? >> well, there is a growing body of reporting for really about 18 mont out what we believe the syrian intention is, th
with the whole family planning bill that was printed but not adopted but gradually the irish government did take responsibility nine years later with the measure and now that is of course, the controversial at all. meanwhile i was enjoying teaching law and a loved the interaction and i was practicing law and because of the opportunity to discuss tonight is state's constitutional law i quickly decided that was the area i wanted to focus on to take the test cases there issues of equality i would take them in the irish courts then there was the possibility these cases could be taken beyond the irish court just as the high court or supreme court because ireland had ratified the european convention on human rights and fundamental freedoms and all of that meant you could take decades having exhausted the remedies to go direct to strasbourg and the other possibility was to take cases to join the european union were there were directive said equal pay and equal opportunity binding on ireland there be a reference to go to luxembourg and argue then get a ruling because the irish court would be bound to ap
